Sooooooo I have ben wondering for quite some time if MY scales were on the same page as the Dr.'s.
I have a digital scales and occasionally it gives me this low (make your eyes bulge out kind of low) reading. Now, I check mine for accuracy before each weigh in. I take a 5lb, weight and make sure it registers at 5lbs on the scales, then I weigh myself.
So anyways, I haven't been feeling too good these last two days and decided to go see the Dr. I weighed myself naked this morning, then again fully dressed and recorded the difference the clothes make. When I went to the Dr. I weighed exactly the same as I had registered fully dressed at home ! (228.8) I know this is kind of a silly thing to get excited about, but it seems like EVERY time I went to the Dr. prior to me being on the Atkins AND using the old type scales I used to have, there was always a HUGE difference. So now I feel like me and the good ol' doc are finally on the same page
for every 5lbs GONE!
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
